Are Bad Reviews of your Book Helpful or Harmful?

.After spending years studying and finally getting to write your book, investing money in
editing and proofreading, your triumph and ego can be ruined by a bad review. Sometimes criticism can hurt deeply.
I had a bad review on my first book and I later learned that the person reviewing the book had only read the beginning, the middle and the ending. She missed the whole idea of what I was conveying to my readers. She later apologized and said, "I had so many books to review and I just couldn't finish them all."
Sometimes, bad reviews can lead to increased sales; they can increase consumer awareness of your book. Guess what happened to me? I got a promise of a movie deal, but I turned it down. My lawyer told me not to sign the contract because it was all for the producer and my publisher, with little or nothing for me. They stood a chance to make big bucks and I would end up with peanuts, plus left holding the bag. And, guess what else happened? This caused my book sales to soar because I went to the Hollywood book festival. Sales at the festival actually quadrupled.
If you're a new author, and you receive a bad review, brace yourself and hold on. Your book can gain positive publicity leading to great sales.
Go to and read what is said about bad reviews. You'll be surprised.

I find that if I write everyday, it's easier to tell whether what I have written is good or bad, and I can reread, edit and think.

Dear Martin, I a sorry that I a just getting back to you. I was out of the country. To answer your question: Before you sit down to write, attend online classes in writing, study, read other author's books, in your genre, and attend as many seminar as possible, be it on line or a writer's conference. When selecting a group, check out any conference opportunities: their costs, is it located near you?, length of conference and whether they offer programs geared to your specific writing needs. join an online workshop on writing. Set up a website and a log to you site. Networking and connecting are critical for your success. Learn as much as you can about publishing and publishing companies, agents and editors. There are traditional publishers and self-publishers. If you goal is to publish with a big publishing house, you probably will need an agent. Some traditional won't accept unsolicited manuscripts. When you begin to write, do the best writing possible and tell a great story. One an agent or publisher can't resist. Most of all keep hope alive. Don't give up!!!
